Its paws each have three toes and a round pink pawpad underneath.

Arcanine can spit large trails of flame, as well as run with extreme speed. Like other Fire-type Pokémon, Arcanine has a flame (or possibly a flame sac) within its body.

Despite the type disadvantage, Pete's Arcanine easily defeated Ash's Kingler by dodging its Bubble attack and using Dragon Rage. Pikachu managed to defeat the Arcanine with a Thunderbolt attack after the Ice Field melted due to Arcanine's Fire Blast.

In The Stolen Stones, two Trainers named Ramona and Keegan had three Arcanine, one under the ownership of Keegan and two under his sister Ramona. They were using the Template:Type2 Pokémon to deliver some Fires to be used as prizes for a local Fire-Pokémon tournament. The two Trainers used their Arcanine to save Ash, Misty, and Brock from falling off a cliff.

In On Cloud Arcanine, Drew and May wanted to capture an Arcanine for using in a Pokémon Contest. When it was discovered that the Pokémon had a litter of Growlithe puppies to take care of, the two rivals decided to leave Arcanine alone.

In Tactics Theatrics!!, Tucker uses the "Fiery Fleet Footed" Arcanine and Swampert, "The Water and Ground Champion," to battle against Ash's Swellow and Corphish.

Trivia

  • Arcanine originally had the name "Blaze."
  • Arcanine is the only Pokémon with a stat total of 555.
    • Arcanine has the highest base stats of any Pokémon that has only evolved once.
    • Arcanine has the highest base stats of any non-legendary Fire-type Pokémon.
  • Arcanine has the second-highest base stat average of any non-legendary and non-pseudo-legendary Pokémon, next to Slaking.
  • Arcanine's Pokédex entry for Pokémon Yellow connects the Pokémon world with our own. It says "A legendary Pokémon in China. Many people are charmed by its grace and beauty while running."
  • In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, it describes itself as having a speed that no one can match, but it is tied at the 68th fastest Pokémon with 20 others. However, this may refer to one of its moves, ExtremeSpeed.
  • Although its species is the Legendary Pokémon, it is not a true legendary, and is not even considered a pseudo-legendary.

Origin

Arcanine is based on the Ryukyuan シーサー shisa, or koma-inu. They are mythical creatures that take inspiration from lions, tigers, and dogs. Statues of them in pairs are used as guardians and to invite good luck. It could also be based on the Haetae, a mythical fire-eating dog with similarities to lions and tigers.

Name origin

Arcanine's name is a combination of arcane, meaning mysterious, and canine, meaning dog. Windie may refer to wind, because this Pokémon runs like a wind as if it was flying and at great speed.
